Mold and mildew in the rubber gasket of a Kenmore front loading washer.

Kenmore HE2plus purchased in 2006. Since shortly after purchase there has been mildew in the rubber gasket. I've tried cleaning it with bleach but it can't be removed. There is always water standing in the gasket unless I use a towel to soak it up. I always leave the door open when not in use. The moldy smell is very strong and I am concerned that the mildew will rub off on the clothes as they are put into and taken out of the washer. I would like to have the gasket replaced but understand that that would cost almost as much as a new washer! I'm not sure what to do ....
